Transcript of Guided Imagery Strategy

Guided Imagery Strategy Learning Objectives

What literacy skills/ comprehension process does it foster?
Imaginative thinking- allows students to create their own idea of the story and organize their thoughts of it.
Activate schema- requires them to pull out prior knowledge to create images and stories in their head.
Problem solving- gives them an alternate angle to figure out what is going on in the story.
Vissual clarification- Gives them a way to see what is going on in the story from their own point of view
Learning Objectives Procedures Extensions/Modifications What occurs during instruction?
Students are introduced to the idea of mental pictures and then use this to create pictures or a movie in their head as the story is read out loud. The students then discuss what they saw or created in their heads. This helps them remember the story and details within it. Make sure text allows imaginative thinking and is full of imagery.
What does the teacher do?
The teacher explains the concept of mental images and reads the story out loud. Every so often the teacher stops to ask what students are seeing or feeling. At the end of the story, the teacher leads a discussion on what the students saw. The teacher will also record what students saw or sensed or felt on the board so students can compare what they did with other students and see that everyone thinks differently.
What do the students do?
Students close their eyes and make a movie in their head. They then share what they saw or sensed. They also discuss as a group how it helped them understand the story. They then continue reading with this strategy on their own. How can you modify this strategy to meet diverse needs of students?
For students who have difficulty comprehending ideas in text, you may begin by providing images at first and asking what they think of when they read or hear the text and if that is similar or different to the image you presented. How can it be used in different content areas?

Guided imagery is great because you don’t need any material and you can do it in any area that is quiet. With that being said guided imagery can be used in any areas. Some areas work better than others but honestly it would be affective for all.
